Pros

Cummins core values, enforced code/treatment policies, endless opportunities, flexibility.

Cons

This isn't so much a con but a good to know about the company. In order to get where you want to be, you have to be one that can sell yourself by networking and getting to know people. This can be a challenge for some because of the uncomfortableness of not only meeting people but having to talk about yourself to them. Also, you have to manage your own work/life balance. If you want to work 70 + hours a week, Cummins will not stop you. However, it is not expected. It will be up to you to determine the right balance for you.

    Pros

    Many engineering assignments carry a high level of technical responsibility with room for learning and growth. It is an international company that prides itself on "diversity."

    Cons

    Not necessarily stable employment. They hire like mad for a few months and turn around and lay off without missing a beat. As a corporation they pride themselves on it, and seem to think it's a good thing to regularly slash the ranks. The top HR and bean counters don't seem to realize the negative effect it has on morale, nor on ability to carry out their mission of developing and making products. Inexperienced people are left holding the bag where gaps of experienced staff are gone. The management thinks nothing of regularly booting out employees with many years of positive contributions, with no notice, no going away luncheon and no dignity. So it's very much an employee beware situation. Extremely few people get to retire willingly at age 65. Often, the experience level of staff leaves something to be desired, but they can sometimes count on suppliers to pick up the slack. There is more planning for continuity in staff with union level staff than exempt level, where there is virtually no coherent plan. Decisions are made so high up, they don't see the detrimental effects of capability at a working level.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize. Humanize.

    Pros

    Can't see any pros in catering to special interest for political expedience

    Cons

    Executives playing a game of political correctness catering to a fringe minority. A majority of employees feel insulted by the company's social position which they have enveloped in the term "diversity". The diverse global employee base does not agree with internal GLBT programs which goes against the grain of the majority beliefs.

    Advice to Management

    Having moral character is not discriminatory.
